The Hearing Industry Research Consortium wishes to support pre-competitive research that advances understanding of the perception of dynamic spatial listening scenarios. Eligible proposals are studies examining the consequence of hearing impairment or effect of hearing instrument acoustics and signal processing on the perception of dynamic sound scenes. These could address aspects of moving sound sources or movements of the listener, as well as dynamic listening behavior. Studies may suggest perspectives to improve the generic design and provision of hearing aids, but should not be concerned with the development of specific features of hearing aid systems.
